Work that matters – providing modeling solutions that allow the intelligence community to answer warfighter questions accurately add quickly; assist in costly evaluations of the acquisition community, and provide analysis to military and government decision-makers
New challenges every day – working in an environment that integrates threat models will give you wide exposure to emerging defense technologies from ground to surface to space to cyber
Competitive Pay/Benefits and a company that knows its employees are the priority
Ability to sponsor and upgrade security clearances
We are looking for a junior RF engineer to expand our team supporting threat analysis in the Defense Intelligence Enterprise. In this role you will analyze foreign threat RF systems, including radar, passive RF detection, electronic support, electronic attack, and tactical communications systems. You will also work alongside a team of developers to incorporate the resulting analysis into documentation and modeling and simulation. This task includes broad exposure to a variety of modern technologies and techniques in the communications, signal processing, and sensing fields. Our local team has deep experience in RF systems, intelligence threat modeling, ballistic missiles, C4 modeling and integrated systems of systems simulations, providing you with both SME support and a broad opportunity for career growth.
Engineering tasks may include 1) RF hardware characterization; 2) software reverse engineering of RF signal processing; 3) system-level characterization of RF systems; 4) subsystem and system-level modeling and simulation derived from all-source intelligence data; 5) integration of system models into engagement-level and mission-level systems-of-systems (SoS) simulations; 6) development and/or integration of high-fidelity propagation effects such as terrain masking, refraction, and over-the-horizon propagation; 7) automated unit, system and SoS test planning, development and execution; support of small and large-scale simulation studies, and 8) support of small and large-scale simulation studies.
You will integrate into the Parsons M&S team and work closely with the appropriate Parsons Task Leads to design and implement RF-related modeling solutions.
